We spend a lot of time trying to eke out a few more minutes from our smart phones. Apple is offering cheap battery replacements and apologizing for iPhone slowdowns, while Android may update to show you which apps drain your battery the most. It's not too surprising, then, that a developer might take a darkly humorous approach to the impending loss of battery power. Called Die With Me, this new app offers users a chat room when their phone has less than 5 percent battery left.

As Motherboard reports, the app was developed by Dries Depoorter and David Surprenant, Belgium-based app developers. "We wanted to do something positive with a low battery," he told the site. "And now we see people happy with a low battery having low battery conversations. We had so much fun creating this." The app has been in development since 2016, says Motherboard, and is now available (after some delays on the iOS side due to Apple's struggle with it's own battery issues) on both the App Store and Google Play.
